    I have the touch-screen LG Sentio from T-Mobile. I was wondering if there was any way to install Android on my phone? If this makes a difference, it is 3G and has a 240x400 3" screen.

    Yeah, I've came across that on various searches. I think its because it can have a boot loader... :/ Anyone else?

    No, I don't believe it is possible. I could be wrong but the only phones android have been put on are the hd2 and the iphone

    The Nokia N900, various WinMo devices (not just the HD2, older ones too) and the iPhone have been made to dual-boot Android.

    The LG Sentio is a dumbphone. Dumbphones don't get to play, sorry.

    I remember reading about some people hacking the iPhone (3GS I think) and running Android OS on it. Not sure which Android version tho.
